Diaz: I'm not going to try to hold Penn down, like those other b------

source: mmajunkie.com
 

"It's not like it's an easy fight for me," Diaz said. "I'm not like these bitches. I'm not going to hold B.J. Penn down the whole time like these guys have done. They held B.J. down because they're bigger than him and stronger than him. I'm not going to do that. I'm not a little bitch to try and hold somebody down. I'm going to go out there and fight this tricky mother [expletive], and it could mean a lot of problems for me. It would have been a lot of problems for them, too, if they had fought him like I fight. They would have lost that fight.

"It's a different matchup, me fighting B.J. I'm not afraid to fight B.J. I'm not afraid to fight anybody. I've proven that. I've won three belts in this [expletive] with people trying to take my head off."

Despite the troubles Diaz caused with his absence, the fact that he was rebooked for the card would seem to suggest he could earn another shot at the belt with a positive performance. Diaz doesn't want to speculate on what the future holds – he understands his career is at an important crossroads – but he's not afraid to make a prediction in St-Pierre vs. Condit.

"If I would have won the fight with Georges, and they wanted me to fight again, I could have seen myself fighting Condit," Diaz said. "I was already looking past the fight with Georges fighting thinking, 'They're probably going to want me to fight Condit.'

"I've been looking at Condit for a long time. He's probably going to whoop Georges' ass. I'm going to want to test myself there."

This is a pretty weak fanboy post from a mod...plenty of people fight BJ...sorry your boy lost bro. Some people need to get in better shape, others need to be less one dimensionalI never heard of anyone trying to 'outpoint' GSP...why not? Cause its fuckin mpossible cause he has no weaknesses. Sad when we see this shit statement from a modMaybe everyone should just wang?

BJ Can surprise him boxing, great chin and great hands if he thinks reach alone will be enuff to put Penn away he's kidding himself.If he looks past Penn the way he was looking past GSP he may end up looking up at the lights

I read that thinking the same fucking thing. 9/10 GSP wins that fight based on better utilization of a game plan anyway but at least it would be interesting until GSP took Diaz down and smashed his face to match Koscheck's.

I am a little guilty of nuthugging but Im guiltier of reacting negatively too unreasonable statements. People who just think cursing on the UG is gonna make a billionaire change his business model can't be reasoned with. I work in a results driven industry the goal is to make money first and foremost other things go out the window, sometimes good ideas die cuz they aren't profitable etc. There are politics what not.I also don't deal so well with the attitude that if you're making millions for fighting you should throw it away by fighting stupidly so some dude on the UG can get a hard on. I've seen guys go from Fighting for UFC Titles to not being in the UFC inside of a year or so, their primes are too short for them to not milk it for what its worth

True that I do find it VERY hard to believe that he seriously thought it was a skit show having trained with Jake Shields you figured he'd be a little more aware of how the situation works concerning title fights. I've seen guys travel for press conferences before. I've seen guys leave one city and go across country just to get a camp in, why did he think everything was gonna gravitate to him? His story seems fishy.

Its always funny when you see a fighter who's primary specialty is grappling bitch cuz the fights he loses aren't boxing matches.Hughes beat Penn fair and square injuries happen, it happened to Penn cuz he's almost borderline to small to be at 170 with a guy like Hughes on top of him.Fight at a bigger weight and take your lumps, have bigger guys like GSP and Hughes on top of you and lose or stay at 155 and dominate the guys like Edgar..oh wait
